Comedian Dean Edwards has been making his mark in comedy following two successful seasons as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. With such memorable impressions as Don Cheadle, Michael Jackson, and Denzel Washington, as well as such original characters as Man in Elevator and Cop #2, Edwards has pushed himself to the limits of creativity and exhaustion. Always the multitasker, Edwards found the momentum to juggle his Saturday Night Live career, his numerous stand-up appearances, and multiple television appearances. Edwards most recently appeared in Showtime’s Comics Without Borders, the nine-week comedy series which showcased multicultural stand up comedians. Currently devoting his career to his first love, stand-up comedy, Edwards will release a comedy DVD with Salient Media in mid-2009.
In addition to stand-up, Edwards has made several late-night appearances, including The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Last Call with Carson Daly. He is also a favorite and frequent guest on Byron Allen’s Comics Unleashed and is frequently providing comedic commentary on various VH1 highlight shows. Director Malcolm D. Lee also chose Edwards to finish Bernie Mac’s voice/ADR work on Soul Men after the comedian’s untimely death. Edwards also provided the voice-over of Barack Obama on the new CNN show, DL Hughley Breaks the News.
Born in the Bronx and raised throughout various parts of New York, Edwards' travels have made it easy for him to communicate with all walks of life. After dividing his college career between classes and a six-year term in the United States Army Reserve, Edwards ultimately made the choice to devote his career to comedy. Although his fellow soldiers loved his impressions of their drill sergeant, Edwards spent many an afternoon doing push-ups to pay for his comedic talent. That talent paid off and Edwards found his career when he participated in his college talent show. Armed with a degree in communications, Edwards became an in-demand comic and landed his first big break on Russell Simmons’ Def Comedy Jam. Though the show is renowned for its blue humor, Edwards found a way to break the traditional mold with his mainstream appeal.
Subsequently, he was a featured comedian on Showtime at the Apollo a few years later. Edwards followed his television appearances by starring in numerous commercials, and he also worked with Spike Lee on the hit feature film, The Original Kings of Comedy. Edwards has since earned a reputation as a headlining favorite at comedy clubs and colleges across the country. Read more...

Mike E. Winfield
Mike E Winfield grew up in the inner city of Baltimore, MD. In his years of school, his teachers always selected him as the master of ceremonies despite his shy demeanor. The confidence to be in front of large groups was created. Later he discovered he could share his humor, in the likings of a college speech class unintentionally. He shared speeches daily. There was no written humorous content in these speeches but he somehow seemed to entertain students and staff in a comedic fashion, and that’s when he realized he had the gift.
The local open mic was once a week on Tuesdays and he never missed a night, often putting other aspects of his life to the side. Despite a tough road, countless performances have earned him appearances such as Comedy Central’s Live At Gotham, BET’s Comicview, and most recently, his network television debut on The Late Show w/ David Letterman, and most recently on the Arsenio Hall Show.

A Southern girl with universal appeal, Julie's shows sell out from Florida to Oregon.

Pat Godwin has blossomed into one of the most clever comedians and prolific, award-winning comedy songwriters in the business. Pat first got national airplay with the holiday classic he crafted with his brothers James and Jack called, “Let’s Put Christ Back in Christmas” from the album Reindeer Games. After that, it wasn’t long before Godwin’s talents were being used on radio morning shows; a medium Pat is more than familiar with. He’s appeared on every top morning show you can think of, worked for 6 years as a part of Philadelphia’s Morning Zoo, 3 years for The Bob & Tom Show, and was a frequent guest and contributor to both Howard Stern’s radio and TV shows.
It comes as no surprise that Godwin is enjoying some success, seeing as how he possesses one of the most entertaining and original live shows in the business. He was featured on NBC’s Last Comic Standing in 2009. Because he has such strong material and highly developed improvisational skills, no two shows are ever the same… not even close. And don’t let that sly boyish smile fool you; it only takes about three seconds on stage to realize that Pat’s comedy has an edge to it. With a mix of quirky, personal musings and off-the-cuff remarks, Godwin can segue in to any one of his songs, performed in an endless array of musical styles. He recently headlined The Irish Comedy Tour employing his vast catalog of Irish material and original drinking songs like, “Switch To Beer” and “Maybe It’s Time To Go Home”.
Though Pat’s been charming audiences in clubs for years and has been featured on every major radio morning show in the country, one of his greatest achievements came with the release of 2005’s “Under the Bed“. Godwin wrote and recorded an eclectic compilation of new tunes, and live favorites, as well as exorcising some of the demons left behind from a relationship gone wrong. But don’t let that dark description scare you; “Under the Bed” is hilarious, and getting heavy rotation on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Show. It contains the Number 1 most requested song on morning radio, “Gangsta Folk,” as well as the International Songwriting Competition award winning songs, “C’est La Vie” and “First Date”. Read more...
